Your Frequently Asked Questions

Accidents involving the use of the Uber rideshare service app can be incredibly complex because they typically involve multiple insurance policies. Uber provides its own insurance coverage, and what they cover depends on the status of the ride at the time of the accident. If you were in an Uber and they were not logging their drive yet, one approach our Uber accident lawyer may take is to file a claim with the driver’s insurance. If the driver was actively using the Uber app at the time of the accident, then you can expect Uber’s insurance to kick in.

When it comes to truck accidents, you may be surprised to find out that many parties could be liable for what happened. Our truck accident lawyer will review all pieces of evidence, including skid marks, vehicle positions, debris, eyewitness statements, and police reports. They will also be reviewing the truck’s maintenance records and whether the driver and trucking company were complying with federal and state regulations. This can mean that there are many possible parties liable for your trucking accident, including the truck driver, the trucking company, maintenance workers, or other third parties. We recommend consulting with our legal team to understand which party is liable in your circumstances.

Many people are surprised to learn that getting compensation for emotional trauma following a car accident is crucial for recovery. Just because your physical injuries may be healing does not mean you are not left with emotional scars. Our car accident lawyer can help you seek compensation for non-economic damages such as reduced quality of life, emotional distress, and mental anguish. Although challenging since it can be difficult to place a price on these injuries, your lawyer will work to get you fair compensation so you can move forward.

The statute of limitations for personal injuries is important to be aware of when it comes to filing a claim or a lawsuit. Generally, for personal injuries in the state of California, you have 2 years to file. If you fail to meet the deadline for filing a claim, then it could result in the inability to pursue compensation. The time frame can vary depending on when an injury was discovered. It’s best to speak with our trusted Oakland personal injury lawyer so that we can advise you of the deadlines for your injury.
